      I’m not sure that I quite understand your question, but in 2013 I was a member of the Rising Star Expedition in the Cradle of Humankind in South Africa. We uncovered over a thousand fossils of a newly discovered species of human ancestor! I didn’t discover the fossils, though, my husband, Rick Hunter, and his friend, Steven Tucker, were the ones that have that distinction!

      You can check out our Nat Geo blog, or if you Google “Rising Star Expedition,” you’ll find our Wiki and tons of news stories!
